Manchester City look so far ahead of the competition in English football, especially in the Premier League, that the questions surrounding them are not if they can win trophies but whether they can be beaten at all. The weekend’s victory over Tottenham was their 16th in succession in the league, dating back to August, placing them as outright record holders for the longest winning streak. In fact, they have only lost once in all competitions, a dead rubber in the Champions League against Shakhtar Donetsk.

Now, Pep Guardiola’s attention swiftly turns to the Carabao Cup. His City side were taken all the way to penalties against Wolves earlier in the competition, so progression cannot be taken for granted. Nothing ever is with Guardiola, though.

He faces a Leicester side who until Saturday had only lost one game under new manager Claude Puel. That came against Manchester City at the King Power Stadium, but the Foxes will be up for this and will see it as a great chance to get some silverware this season.



It is getting repetitive discussing Man City’s form because they don’t look at all beatable at the moment. In the Premier League, they have passed two tests with flying colours recently, easing past both Manchester United and Tottenham, two supposed title rivals. Not only are they fully able to blow teams away in swashbuckling style, but they can also battle as they have against the likes of West Ham, Southampton and Huddersfield lately. Championship leaders Wolves could count themselves unlucky that they didn’t beat them in the last round at the Etihad Stadium, shutting them out for 120 minutes before losing on penalties.

Leicester may not be quite in the same rich vein of form as their masterful opponents, but they themselves have looked good. Many onlookers who thought it uninspiring judged Puel’s appointment rather harshly, but he has eased relegation fears and got the club looking up again.

They currently sit eighth in the league and until Saturday had only lost once under the Frenchman, at home to Guardiola’s men. But they were taught a bit of a lesson by Crystal Palace, who won 3-0, and that could prove a bit of a wake up call. They’ll certainly be up for this one.

Team News


Manchester City will still be without John Stones for this game, while it isn’t clear if David Silva will return after missing the Spurs win. Guardiola may take this opportunity to mix up his side and give the likes of Bernardo Silva and Yaya Toure a run out.

Leicester will miss midfielder Wilfred Ndidi who was sent off at the weekend on his 21st birthday, but only Robert Huth is on the injured list. The likes of Kelechi Iheanacho, Islam Slimani and Christian Fuchs are all pushing for starts.
